IMO itís the correct move. My dad is a pretty diehard GB fan and he was not big on him at all

Just an outstanding defensive game plan and defensive execution today.

Defense was FANTASTIC today and also did a good job bringing pressure. I mean, only 5 catches for 28 yards for Thielen? WOW! And also, SCREW Thielen. Guy came across as a clown today with his antics honestly. Glad we stuck it to him at the end and seeing Belichick tell him to "shut the **** up" was lowkey hilarious  :laugh:

Also I can see why folks aren't as high on Kirk Cousins. He did look ordinary today and when they needed him to make plays, he couldn't and just kept checking down (even on 4th and 11, he just threw some 5 yard check down pass lol). Part of it was our defense too though!

To be honest though, and I'm sure even your dad would agree, it's not all McCarthy's fault. Just a ton of issues all around and frankly even Rodgers has looked off too (and Crosby as well). Ultimately he was the "fall guy" in this instance, now interesting to see if Rodgers is in GB his whole career or not, and if so, who their next head coach is.

I'm actually a bit surprised they fired him immediately after the game and not end of the season though.

Heard there was beef between Rodgers and McCarthy. And, who wouldn't fire a head coach if their team lost at home to one of the worst teams in the NFL while currently going through a losing season.

Hard to believe that McCarthy, a coach who took his team to the NFC Championship 4 times in 13 years and won a Superbowl just got fired but the good awful coach, Marvin Lewis, is on his 16th season in Cincinnati without having won a single playoff game.

Bengals with Marvin Lewis?  :P

But yeah there was disagreement and tension between the two for the past few seasons. That said, it won't really matter unless the FO makes legit moves this offseason, or absolutely nail their next HC hiring, otherwise it'll just be more of the same.

Would Josh McDaniels go to Green Bay to coach Aaron Rodgers?

This was incredible! I love seeing Belichick get into it  :o

Anyway, crisis averted. After a less than impressive end of the 1st half/beginning of the 2nd, the Pats simply imposed their will on both sides of the ball. Let's hope they can keep this rolling!

So the Jags continue to suck against everyone not named New England, allowing Derrick Henry to go off tonight for 238 yards and 4 touchdowns rushing. Henry obviously played well, but his "99-yard touchdown run" had quite a bit of help from 3 horrible tackle attempts. I wish the Jags had tackled like that against the Pats.

Every team that the Patriots lost to this season have played their Superbowl against New England. Titans got routed b2b. Jaguars irrelevant these days. Lions are bottom-dwellers.

Yup. I kinda wish it wasn't so. I mean, on one hand, the Pats have looked bad against some mediocre-to-bad teams, and that's the Pats' fault; on the other hand, I'm like, dang, can't these teams just know their place and stay there? ;D

As a side note, I'd be very unhappy if I were a fan of any of those teams, watching them beat the mighty Patriots but look pretty bad the rest of the time.
